burk uzzle at the ackland

Dave and I completed our Burk Uzzle exhibit hat-trick with a visit to our final destination: The Ackland Museum in Chapel Hill. The intriguing thing about this trio of exhibits is that The Ackland, The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh and The Nasher Museum in Durham all collaborated to showcase Uzzle's great photographs while at the same time presenting different themes/programs/subjects at each site.
One of our favorites at the Ackland (and there were many!) was this emotional piece that Uzzle captured while photographing Martin Luther King's funeral
and the scene surrounding that event.
Still relevant after all these years, don't you think?
